Hard is Not the Same Thing as Bad

We are a week away from Mother's Day, and we begin our celebration of moms by hearing from a bestselling author who is the mother of ten children—including two sets of identical twins! Her motto in life is something we can all embrace. She says, "Hard is not the same as bad." Don't miss the encouragement for moms on Chris Fabry Live.
